- Desktop-class performance for notebook computers - With 7200 RPM spin speed, 16 MB cache, and capacities up to 320 GB, these drives enable you to have the best of both worlds: the capacity and performance of a desktop PC with the convenience and portability of a notebook.
- Massive capacity - WD's 320 GB 2.5-inch drives offer huge capacity for space-hungry operating systems like Windows Vista, with plenty of room left over for photos, music, and video.
- Low power consumption - With technologies like IntelliSeek, which calculates optimum seek speeds to lower power consumption [View demo] and SecurePark, which reduces power by parking the heads during low power idle mode, this drive delivers 5400 RPM-equivalent power consumption in a 7200 RPM drive
- Quiet - In a notebook drive, silence is golden. WD's exclusive WhisperDrive combines state-of-the-art seeking algorithms to yield one of the quietest 2.5-inch hard drives on the market
- WD's ShockGuard technology protects the drive mechanics and platter surfaces from shocks during shipping and handling and in daily operation
- WD's SecurePark parks the recording heads off the disk surface during spin up, spin down and when the drive is off. This ensures the recording head never touches the disk surface resulting in improved long term reliability due to less head wear and improved shock tolerance
- Tested for compatibility - We perform tests on hundreds of systems and a multitude of platforms in our FIT Lab and Mobile Compatibility Lab to give WD customers confidence that our drives will work in their systems

I nearly fell for this myself and am warning others looking for freefall drives likely to be misled by this listing.
This drive is model:WD3200BEKT
For drive WITH Freefall Sensor you want model WD3200BJKT
DON'T BUY THIS IF YOU WANT A FREEFALL DRIVE!!
I would say that my general feeling is that this hard drive is twice as fast as the stock 5400 RPM drive.
Not only is it faster and has a larger capacity, but it is quiet as well. There is almost no noise difference between when this drive is idle and when it is fully operational.
There decrease in battery duration is marginal, I haven't measured it exactly but my feeling is that is about the same as the stock drive.
Overall I am really impressed with this drive and I warmly recommend it to anyone who is fed up with slugish laptop drive performance.
Delivered within 3 days.
No issues installing the restore disk either.
No hesitation in giving it 5 Stars.
As also previously mentioned, WD then make you jump through hurdles regarding precise postage, packaging & labelling - all at the unfortunate consumers costs (with the threat of +£100 admin/replacement fee if you do not comply). (Seagate is apparently no better - I actually avoided buying Seagate, having been previously a loyal customer, because their customer service was getting such bad reviews).
WD did replace my Harddrive. This one only lasted a couple of weeks before EXACTLY the same bad sector problems re-occurred.
I'm guessing a lot more in use are faulty. These faults aren't noticable until you really fill your drive up (as I do!) and then, I guess, the Windows swop file starts getting written to the bad sectors then you REALLY notice!
BTW - just for the record I bought this drive to replace a WD Scorpio Blue 120Gb, which I have now reverted back to....and never had a single problem with. Maybe cramming too much into such a small space is beyond the abilities of these manufacturers trying to play the catch-up game? I've also heard some of the larger series of Seagate drives suffered similar problems.
Upped from tiny little 40GB drive to this 320GB drive and now don't have to worry every time I install, save or download something.
Downloaded the free Acronis from WD, which worked perfectly. Apart from finding the right driver for the new drive laptop booted up first time.
Only problem is that the old drive seems to have recovered from its problems and actually ran quieter than the new one, but it was slower.

Super fast. For a mechanical drive this thing really moves. However it's not cheap. Also runs a little warm and will reduce battery life.Published 2 months ago by Mark J. Pearce
